Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry for the loss of Clydell. I just found out about her passing. Love to all of you.

Mark and Melissa, we are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. May God give comfort to your hearts in this time of great sorrow. ❤

She was always very kind and courteous to all. She was helpful to everyone that came to her office and whether you knew her well or met her in her work, you could tell she was a good person.
To her Family, it was a privilege to have her in our lives. My prayers are with you.

May God comfort you during this time of loss. Love and prayers.
